Little Mix star Perrie Edwards is aiming to wed her pop star beau Zayn Malik as soon as possible, because she does not want a long engagement.

The One Direction heartthrob popped the question to British singer Edwards in August (13), and although the couple has yet to start organising its nuptials, the bride-to-be reveals it won't be long before they tie the knot.

She tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "Zayn and I have had no time to start properly planning. The engagement kind of just happened and then we've been away from home all year.

"But put it this way: I don't want to be engaged for 50 years. We'll get there soon."

However, there is one detail Edwards has already decided on - she previously stated that her bandmates, Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson, will serve as her bridesmaids in the ceremony.
